The Shetland Bus

A WWII Epic of Escape, Survival, and Adventure by David Howarth.
After the Germans invaded Norway, many Norwegians knew that small boats were constantly sailing from the Shetland Islands to land weapons, supplies, and agents and to rescue refugees. David Howarth, who was second in command of the Shetland base, recounts the hundreds of trips made by fishing boats in the dark of Arctic winter to resist the Nazi onslaught. For the Norwegians who remained in Norway, the Shetland Bus -- as this dangerous operation became known--fortified them both physically and spiritually. An amazing true-life account of storms, attacks, danger, and the heroic efforts of brave men.
